The Enterprise answers a distress call from Federation Outpost #4, a monitoring station on the Federation side of the neutral zone with the Romulan Empire. The outposts were established over a century ago and no one has actually seen a Romulan. The Romulan vessel seems to have some type of high energy explosive device as well as a cloaking device to make the ship invisible. When it appears that Romulans bear a strong resemblance to Vulcans, Kirk must deal with a rebellious crew member. He must also engage in a dangerous cat and mouse game with a very intelligent Romulan commander.

While officiating at a wedding ceremony, Captain Kirk says, "Since the days of the first wooden vessels, all ship-masters have had one happy privilege: that of uniting two people in the bonds of matrimony." This is false; while the fictional Starfleet's regulations may allow captains to perform marriage ceremonies, there is no record of any maritime service in Earth's history having done so. The America, British, and Russian/Soviet navies have always specifically prohibited their commanding officers from doing this. See more
We enter the Neutral Zone in one minute, Captain.
Do we violate the treaty, Captain?
They did, Doctor.
Once inside, they can claim we did. A set-up. They want war, we furnish the provocation.
